Today, massive cult act, The Maine are excited to release their highly anticipated album, "Lovely Little Lonely."
"Lovely Little Lonely" marks the sixth studio release for the band, who also recently celebrated their 10 year anniversary the only way they know how - by throwing their own festival, "8123 Fest". The record is also first that they are releasing entirely independently.
First single from the album, "Bad Behavior" blends infectious guitar with wistful melodies and an energy that is impossible to ignore - a fitting first look into the record and insight into how the Maine has evolved. O'Callaghan notes, "If you go back in time and listen to our first record all the way up to where we are now, it is no secret that we stretched ourselves in every direction. Through all of those twists and turns, however, our fans kept showing up. They kept buying albums, kept interacting online, kept growing the 8123 family, and most importantly, they kept listening. This helped us discover who we truly are as a band."
The track has garnered over one million streams since its release in January, and is creeping up the alternative radio charts and has been added to KXNA, KPOI, KYRK, KNOB, KUCD, KRAB and KDKB with additional spins across the country. The band complimented the track with a fitting video, releasing visuals that features live footage from "8123 Fest" and a behind the scenes look into the world that the band has created over the last decade that feels both intimate all inclusive.
From the slow burning "Lonely" to the lovestruck restlessness of "I Only Wanna Talk To You" and the 80's tinged "Lost In Nostalgia", and every moment in between, Lovely Little Lonely is a stunning achievement from a band who have a clear perception of where they want to go, without forgetting where they are from.
When they're not playing sold out shows across the country, the Phoenix based act are jet setting across the globe, taking their electric live show to sold out audiences and festivals internationally. In their ten-year tenure as a band, they've sold half a million records and 3 million songs collectively, amassing an incredibly engaged fanbase. Their socials sit at around 800k on Facebook, 113k on Instagram, and with enigmatic band frontman, John O'Callaghan at around 586k followers.
The Maine are on the road this April for a massive world headlining tour with support from The Mowglis and Beach Weather, which will bring them all over the States as well as to Singapore, Brazil and the Philippines in support of Lovely Little Lonely - which is available to stream now.
In celebration of the release, the band has partnered with independent record stores, music venues, and coffee shops to carry limited edition physical copies of the album on release day. The band are hosting a full pop up shop with merchandise in San Francisco on April 7th and in Los Angeles on April 10th where they will be in attendance. More info can be foundhere.
